re: Did Romero do enough Sunday to send Pap to the bench? - drdrfaulkner
Perhaps there is another variable here: Don't most teams start on Friday nights (or the first game of a series) with their strongest pitcher? If true, Pap has batted against the best that teams can offer. Has Romero? Romero looks good against the "rest of the staff" but would he fare as good going a...

re: SEC Network+ is free? - drdrfaulkner
I have been able to watch every LSU baseball game this year via Dish, either on WatchESPN or the SECN. You will have to install a Sling player (accessible through Dish) on a computer to get it. Some non-SECN games are also available through CBS or other areas. Since I also have Dish, I am able to ge...

re: Devin White must not like Franks for bailing - drdrfaulkner
I'm not for calling kids' decisions garbage because they backed out of a decision. The kid is immature--if you can't keep a commitment, you get a divorce. Many on here act as if it's someone's "ex" if someone makes a decision against the prevailing thought. Forgive the kid and go on--forgiveness is ...

re: John Ferguson in World War II - drdrfaulkner
[quote](In the late 1970s or early 1980s, I was playing violin in a wedding in Mobile, when Ed Keyes, minister of music and soloist, turned to me and told me the score. His wife, Jan, was listening on the radio in the congregation and was hand-signaling the score to him as he and I sat next to the p...

re: John Ferguson in World War II - drdrfaulkner
I remember Politz announcing for LSU radio in the early 1950s when we listened at my Grandparents' home in DeRidder. He made the call on the 89-yard punt return on Halloween night of 1959. My Dad and I were listening in the car in our driveway in Mobile--never will forget it. I do not recall when J...

re: 10 years ago tonight, we shocked the world - drdrfaulkner
I remember that game as well. I was working in Fayetteville, NC, for Camber Corporation and wore my LSU shirt the next day. My boss said he liked me until then (he did get over it, though). It was a very solemn day that day for the entire region (except for me--it was ecstatic)....

re: Disrespecting Matt Flynn - drdrfaulkner
[quote]quality writing[/quote] Agree. And those numbers are NOT identical--they are somewhat similar. Matt's yards are at least a game better than Osweiler's. Also--the questions at the end of the article are improperly written--they do not allow for other possibilities. If you answer "No", yo...

re: Jake from State Farm lady at Alex Box - drdrfaulkner
I went to a lot of South Alabama games between 1977 and 1998, and they had some guy there who, when runners were on base, would say "There he goes". I thought that hilarious sometimes, but could be annoying. It seemed to occur a lot--got to see Marlon Anderson, Luis Gonzalez, John Lieber, and a bunc...

re: Who had the pleasure of watching Pete play? - drdrfaulkner
[quote]ONly on TV, but it was glorious[/quote] Same here. I was in the cafeteria at Mobile College (now The University of Mobile) watching as he scored those 69 points. Most watching with me were pulling for Bama (of course) and didn't really like my cheering for LSU. Never saw him play in person...

re: No Hate towards Simmons, he's just a talented kid.....This is all on JJ. - drdrfaulkner
What could you actually accomplish disciplining Simmons? All he has to do is "go through the motions" and he still walks into millions of dollars next year? My son got halfway through his senior year in HS, saw all his credits met, and slept in class the rest of the school year. He knew what was ahe...

re: Anyone else book a Southwest flight today for the trip to Green Bay - drdrfaulkner
Southwest doesn't seem to fly to Green Bay--but does so to Milwaukee. I checked for flights leaving on 9/3 and returning on 9/5. The "Wanna Get Away" flights are now around $320 per RT, but you would have to lease a vehicle to drive the 118 miles from Milwaukee to GB. Interestingly, the flights from...

re: LSU is 16-12 with Ben Simmons - drdrfaulkner
[quote]Simmons is slightly overrated and Jones is a horrendous coach[/quote] I get the impression that Simmons has overrated himself. He is riding high on a train that is about to run off the tracks unless he gets an attitude adjustment. Unless Simmons takes on an attitude he is not the best, he ...
